Never Enough Wool
March – April 2016
Spring has sprung! At least, it has at the shop… We have been busy stocking up on all our 3 season and summer knitting yarns… Let me take you on a tour.
First, let me introduce you to our “wall of sock yarn”. If you want Regia, Opal, Lang, Cascade, Fabel—we have them all. Woolly, wool-less, you name it. Solids, patterns… I am dizzy just thinking of the possibilities. If you need an idea of an adorable something to knit with this, check out our class schedule or see us. We have ideas…
Next up, we have brought in several lines of cottons and cotton blends. Going from smallest (#0 weight) to largest (#3 weight), we have new colours of the Schachenmayr Tahiti (lace weight, gorgeous, need I say more?).
Then we have Katia’s Mississippi 3, a 4 ply (#1) cotton for all your t-shirt and lightweight sweaters.
In the #2 (Fine or sport weight) category, we happily introduce the Nako Fiore. It is a bamboo/cotton/linen blend that is sure to become a new favourite for sweaters and accessories.
In the dk (#3) weight yarns, we have new colours of our old favourite King Cole Authentic as well as some new colours of the King Cole Drifter.
And a new yarn – also from King Cole- called Vogue. It is 100% cotton and a great treat for all the younger folks in your life. I should also add that it makes great adult garments too.
For our worsted selection, we have lovely organic cotton called Bio-Sesia.
To round out our cotton selection, we have Batiko Sun by Schachenmayr. This is a chunky ribbon yarn that makes terrific accessories. I really can’t say which of these new cottons should be knit up first. Feel free to give us a vote on this thorny question.
In our non-cotton newbies, we have new colours of the Lakeland Chunky by James Brett.
Also we introduce the Kaleidescope Worsted from Euro Baby. It is a premium acrylic yarn with long colour repeats. Check out Carol’s Ten Stitch Blanket to get an idea of how this yarn knits up.
We will be celebrating “Knit in Public” day by having a potluck dinner on Sunday, June 12th. The location and time will be announced a wee bit later, but be certain to write the date on your calendars. There will be plenty of scrumptious food, lots of laughter and good times for one and all.
Happy knitting and crocheting!
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
March – Robie Tank – this is a slipstitch design in which you will learn how to work with two colours though never in the same row. Cost is $25 plus materials. (Class is underway at this time; speak to Carol or Barb if you wish to start late.) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/robie-tank
April – Lace Raglan Tee – A cotton, short-sleeved tee, featuring a little lace and a little cable. The raglan sleeve shaping provides a good fit and unusual look. Cost is $25, plus materials. Class starts April 5th .
May – Socks from the toe up—If you have ever wondered how to make the most of that special skein of sock yarn, toe up socks are the way to go. We will be teaching this fabulous technique on a variety of sock weight yarns. Cost is $25 plus materials. Class starts May 3rd.
May—Debbie Bliss Christmas Blanket Knit-Along—Continuing with the theme of knit-alongs, we present this opportunity to complete a Christmas themed baby (or lap) blanket in time for gift giving this holiday season.
June—Reverber Scarf—This beauty introduces the Brioche knitting technique in the form of a stunning scarf that is sure to wow all you friends and relatives. Cost is $25 plus materials, and class begins June 7th.
